What is Holter Monitor Test?
A Holter test, also known as a Holter monitor, is a medical procedure that records the electrical activity of your heart for a continuous 24-48 hour period. It is a type of electrocardiogram (ECG) that is used to detect heart rhythm problems such as arrhythmias or irregular heartbeats. During the test, electrodes are attached to your chest and connected to a portable ECG monitor that you wear on your waist or shoulder. The monitor records your heart’s electrical activity while you go about your normal daily activities, including sleep, exercise, and any symptoms you may experience. You will be asked to keep a diary of any activities, symptoms or events that occur during the monitoring period.
